Land Acknowledgement 

Summer Search Boston's office resides on the unceded land of the Pawtucket and Massa-adchu-es-et (Massachusett) peoples, past and present. We honor with gratitude the land itself, and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.

We recognize this as just one step in acknowledging the history of forced removal of indigenous people from their land and our work toward racial justice.

We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Pawtucket and Massa-adchu-es-et communities, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations.

Boston PARTNERS

Our school and community partners are the behind-the-scenes heroes and the starting place for every Summer Search journey. They introduce us to students who demonstrate self-reflection, agency, empathy, follow-through, and adaptive skills — the seeds for success in school and life — which are cultivated throughout our program.
